Marriages Are Made in Heaven
Steve Donald

Are marriages really made in heaven? What about the many couples who ask for pastoral advice, saying they married the wrong person? If they are Christians, they would probably agree that marriage is made in heaven. But they wouldn’t accept…

What a Comeback! Life starts again at Easter
Phil Heaps

This evangelistic publication comes in an optimal size to give to a non-Christian. Having 32 spine-bound pages, it’s more substantial than a leaflet – and thus less likely to be thrown away thoughtlessly – yet not so large as to…

The Wholesome Doctrine of the Gospel: Faith and love in the writings of William Perkins
William Perkins

William Perkins is the most influential Puritan writer you’ve never heard of! This book serves as an introduction to his works by opening up his view of the doctrine of the gospel. Perkins does this by pointing to things to…

Systematic Theology
Robert Letham

This tome could be considered Robert Letham’s magnum opus, and will undoubtedly enrich the theology and ministry of the church for years to come. The most striking feature is the accessibility of the writing style – something not easy to…

The Great Transformation: The sanctification and glorification of the believer
Maurice Roberts

This book started life as eight of the author’s sermons, and throughout it, God’s spotlight is turned onto one’s soul. Having appreciated many of Maurice Roberts’s previous books, I was not surprised by this. I found that The Great Transformation…

Willing but Weak: Fighting to put self-control at the heart of Christian discipleship
Paul Williams

I guess most of us, if we are really honest, would admit that we struggle with self-control. Here is a book that tackles the issue in a clear and forthright way. It is a small volume, which might superficially suggest…

The Cross of Jesus: How Christ understood his crucifixion
Warren Wiersbe

Warren Wiersbe was primarily known for his work in radio ministry, and published a large number of books rooted in evangelical, biblical truth. A striking feature of The Cross of Jesus is its basic, straightforward approach to the centrality of the cross…

The Way of Life: Christian belief and experience
Charles Hodge

The aim of this book is to promote holiness, and the author’s view is that ‘the exhibition of the truth is the best means of promoting holiness’ (p.5). Thus he sets out in the first chapter to demonstrate that the…

Our chief of days
Jeremy Walker

This little book does exactly what it says on the cover! Steering a balanced course between legalism on one side and casual indifference on the other, the author sets out the case for keeping the Lord’s day special. Its three…

Departures: Poems and meditations on the Book of Exodus
P. D. Gray

Departures is a devotional book, but one with a difference. It consists of 40 chapters, each corresponding to a chapter in the book of Exodus. P. D. Gray recommends that the reader should read carefully and reflect deeply on each chapter…

Biblical Marriage: Two sinners and a gracious God

The author’s thoroughgoing commitment to the Word of God is transparent throughout this book. The starting point is the biblical truth about the creation of humanity as male and female, and God’s original design for marriage articulated in the opening…

The Christian’s True Identity: What it means to be in Christ
Jonathan Landry Cruse

Identity is a current buzz word. People are preoccupied with trying to figure out who they really are and who they connect with. ‘Who am I?’ is the question of the moment. Trading on this, Jonathan Cruse exhorts new believers…

In the Presence of my Enemies – Psalms 25-37
Dale Ralph Davis

This is the third in a series of books on the Psalms. Those who have read the previous two volumes will realise that Professor Davies is not a dry and dusty academic writing for fellow academics. His aim is not…

The History and Theology of Calvinism
Curt Daniel

This must be the most comprehensive study of the subject available today. It is difficult to think of any aspect of Calvinism that is not covered. It is divided into two major sections. The first covers the history, and ranges…

The Madness of Crowds
Douglas Murray

In God’s common grace, some non-Christians can better discern and explain the trends of our current age than many believers can. The British journalist Douglas Murray is one such person. ‘All our grand narratives have collapsed’, he observes (p.1); and…
